Eric “Turkey” Williams trots to career first Ti22 Sprint win!
Brian Swartzlander repeats in Diehl Mods, inches closer to title
2012 Track Champion Jared Miley caps season with sixth feature win
AJ Flick runs away with his second Sportsman feature win of the season
Sarver, PA (August 17, 2012) Eric “Turkey” Williams looked like he was shot out of a cannon (think jet airplane windshield testing, google it if you’ve never seen it!), early in the Ti22 Sprint feature and held off a hard charging Rod George to win his first career feature at Lernerville Speedway! At the opposite end of the spectrum, All Time Diehl Mods wins leader Brian Swartzlander won his fourth race of the season, 76th
of his career and inched closer to his seventh Budweiser Track Championship! Despite already locking up the Budweiser Track Championship, Jared Miley won his sixth feature win of 2012 after early leader Garrett Krummert slid off the top of the back straightaway on lap 14. AJ Flick shut down the Action Track with a dominant win in the Pic-A-Part Sportsman as Joe Kelley, Corey McPherson and Bob Egley put on a great race in heavy lapped traffic in the closing laps for second place.
With just one week left in the 2012 Budweiser Track Championship Chase, Kevin Schaeffer holds a 16 point lead over fellow former Three-Time Track Champion Rod George in the Ti22 Sprints. In the Diehl Mods, Brian Swartzlander rides a 29 point lead over Defending Track Champion Jeremiah Shingledecker and a 30 point lead over Dave Murdick. Corey McPherson’s heat race win and third place finish has him on the cusp of his first Track Championship in the Pic-A-Part Sportsman over Jim Fosnaught whom enters the final night of points 27 markers behind McPherson! Due to prior obligations, this week’s Fab Four Race Report and Budweiser points will be posted/updated Sunday evening.
